Verve Visual Honored Guest Challenge #2

It's time again for another Verve sketch! Check out the details HERE. I made two versions of this card because I couldn't decide if I like the ribbon or not, so I thought I'd show you the bare bones version and the "stepped up" version.
Head on over to the Verve Gallery to see what the rest of the awesome Design Team did with the sketch. Plus, there's some NEWS over at Verve!
Say hello to the four newest faces of Verve! Amy Sheffer from Pickled Paper Designs, Carole Burrage from Mother's Little Helper, Susan Liles from Susiestampalot, and Laura Fredrickson from Scrapnextras. A big congratulations to Shannan Teubner who has accepted the position as our new Design Team coordinator. Be sure to check out their blogs, as they'll be doing a little bit of celebrating Verve Style this week. :) Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Anniversary Birds, Thankful Blossoms (Verve Visual); Paper- Whisper White, Wild Wasabi (SU), Nana'sBaby Girl Nursery Stack (DCWV); Ink- Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi (SU); Accessories- eyelets (Making Memories), paper piercer, Regal Rose marker, rose organdy ribbon (Darice)

I love both cards! I think I do like the ribbon card just a little bit more though! Of course, that could be because I don't think a card (especially one of mine) is complete without some ribbon accent LOL! Congratulations to all the design team -- I love looking at the samples! Jeanne

Heather said...

Great cards but I think both are quite "spruced up". Just found your blog over @ Queen Kat's & think you're great!

Janine said...

Both are nice but I lean towards the one without the ribbon more.
Have a great day@

I love this set by Verve Visual! I think both cards are great, but I think I'd have to go with the first one since I'm a 'less is more' kinda gal.
